Dry Tattooing Scar Treatment
Dry Tattooing scar treatment is also known as Micro Needling and is a fantastic treatment for scars, burns and stretchmarks. I always refer to this treatment as being 'a little bit of magic', because it reminds me of how incredible the human body is!
Most of us have some form of scarring and for many it can be a source of anxiety or stress. I personally have a large scar on my head from an accident as a child, together with extensive scarring to my knee following multiple surgeries. As a result, it's affected how I've worn my hair and the clothes I wear. So I can fully empathise with the mental and emotional impact scarring can have. Since treating my own scars with micro needling a few years ago, I was confident enough to wear shorts and skirts again for the first time in years and you may even catch me with my hair up now, too!
What is a Dry Tattooing Scar Treatment good for?
I have treated clients who have scarring for many reasons. From accidents and surgery, through to severe burns, self harm scars and stretchmarks.
While this isn’t a scar removal treatment as unfortunately there is no such thing, it is something that can be very effective at improving the look and feel of scarring.

Scar Reduction Treatment for Scars and Burns
What happens after a treatment?
- Old scar tissue is broken down.
- Fresh collagen and elastin are produced, helping to improve the quality of the skin.
- Melanin production is triggered, which helps the skin regain natural skin tone.
- Raised scars start to flatten out.
- Sunken scars start to level out.
- Tight scars relax and become less restricted.
- Scars look less obvious and are not as noticeable.
I can't offer a guarantee as to the exact results, as essentially I am triggering your body's natural healing response. I always tell client that I have typically seen a 40-70% improvement in scars and burns, but everyone is individual.
What is Micro Needling?
I carry out the treatment using a specialist medical tattooing machine. It is often referred to as dry needling or dry tattooing, as no pigment or product is used. I use a specialised needle to work into the surface layers of the skin, just enough to cause a minor controlled trauma and stimulate blood flow and plasma to the area. The process causes minute punctures. These in turn trigger the body to produce collagen, melanin and elastin in order to fill the wound, thereby promoting healing.
Please don't be put off by the term 'trauma'! This is a very controlled specific type of trauma that is caused at a level in the skin that promotes your natural healing. I will happily go into a full geeky explanation with you on the telephone or at a consultation if you like!
